After the pledges were made and collections taken, the several 
reports were adopted, as follows: 

ASSOCIATIOXAL MISSION'S. 

We, your committee on Associational Missions, submit the following as 
our report: 

There has been much good accomplished by our missionaries within the 
bounds of our association, yet there remains much to be done. Possiblv, 
there has not been a time within the las' 25 years' history of this body, 
when a greater effort was needed than nt the present. Situpir because our 
country is inviting the people from all portions of the world to come and 
settle among us. FielJs of iron ore are being developed; new towns are 
being built. Therefore, our people, as well as those from foreign countries, 
are flocking to those iron fields and new towns. It behooves the Baptists of 
tbis association to go into those centers of population with the plain truths 
of the gospel of Jesus Christ, "which is the power of God unto salvation to 
every one that believeth," and thereby plant the truths of the Bible in their 
hearts. 

Your committee would recommend the course already adopted, of cen- 
tralizing our work wherfr the greatest amount of good can be accomplished 
with the limited amount of means in hand. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. T Cobbs. Ch'n., 

J. B. HuCKABF.E. 

8TATE MISSIONS. 

The fifteenth annual report of the State Mission Board shows that 48 mis- 
sionaries were employed for a part of their time last year. They served 6 081 
davs which would be less than the entire time of 18 men. They received 
$$G 353 97, which would give them an average daily pav of less than $1 07. 
TheStateof Alabama, with 97,918 white Baptists, supports less than 18 
mi'sioDaries for their entire time, at the above small samrv. The number 
of people in the State, divided Mpinllv between these 18 missionaries, would 
give to each the vast number of H3.733 human souls, to whom they are, to 
some extent, required to give the bread of life. To enable them to do this 
work each Baptist of the State pays only about G,'£ cents to State Missions 
annually. Alabama has a population of 1,508 073. of which '* are Bap- 
tists, with less than 18 Baptist missionaries employed for their entire time 
In preaching t&e gospel of Jesus Christ. This state of affairs is but a decla- 
ration of unfaithfulness upon the part of the Baptists of the State. Espe-

whisky is a foe more cruel than corporations, more greedy than rn«;. , 
more relentless than taxes It seems the eyes of the laboring clas-e? ' 
blinded to their tract condition, while men hold* hiuh carnival over tli.., r *' 
it has wrought T/uvi'nc of tf„. f.,.,1 ,.r„.h,rt, „f„„rc:H,Ur„, t»«ctl,er \5tkV*

the terribleev.lsbt-fore our eyes daily produced bv strong drink j't CI . . 
impossible to r-sist the conclusion thai ir is the duty of every Christian^. • 
every good citizen to fight the liquor traffic in all honorable wavs/and w, » 
• honorable weapons, always everywhere and under »l I circumstance 
all our battles for temperance let it be n.id.r.-rood that it is not the tra.h'r 
but the traffic, which we hate. Howtver seared his conscience how l„ 
graded soever his life, he is still our human brother, made in the imaee Tr 
our father, and possessed of an immortal soul . The three methods of d«u 
ing with whiskey, which now engage the public attention, are moral suasion" 
regulation by tax and absohite prohibition It is sad that the differenc-s «,f 
opinion among temperance workers have frf ouently resulted in alienation 
and even p onounced hostility. It is hard to see the different divisions of 
the grand army of God. who are making for the same noble end. brine 
into each other a ranks, and flinging mud. with all the unholy zeal of the 
political knave. Let us have all the moral suasion possible, for it is vitallv 
necessary Certainly it is in keeping with the teachings of Christianity 
and with the spirit of the highest c.ivihzition. It lovingly and tenderly' 
pleads with man. Taxation is partial prohibition. That regulation bv 
tax has, in many places, closed numb°rs of shops, and those the lowest and 
worst, ran not be denied. Itsounds sillv to hear a prohibitionist sav 'If 
we can t have prohibition, let us have free rum." When the advo-ate of 
high license shows hundreds of saloons shut bv his law. I think we ought to 
acknowledge that so far as he goes, he has done a good work, unless it be 
wrong to close those shops by compulsory measures. Prohibition cannot 
advance that objection. Hence, the only reasonable ground for objection 
to High License is. that it does not go far enough. 

As Christians, we should be wise, and hail with delight anything that 
tends to bring us nearer th* desired end absolute prohibition. Prohibition 
we want, prohibition we must have. God grant wisdom to direct the *reat 
army of temperance, so that all their nower may be utilized, combined and 
concentrated to » his one grand end. That we mav indeed and in truth, sing 
of America, "The land of the free, the home of the brave."
